Why you should attend

Since the launch of Destination Coventry towards the end of 2021, there was an intention and appetite to develop an annual conference for Coventry and Warwickshire businesses within the visitor economy, or those who supply to the industry.

This event will celebrate the success of our tourism offering in the region. We will also address barriers that impact our business growth, and new market trends that we all need to respond to and, where possible, diversify our product.

By having these conversations and responding to them as a regional collective, we can continue our ambition to become a destination of distinction for both leisure and business visitors to Coventry and Warwickshire.

The conference will include engaging panel discussions from specialist speakers and local business leaders on subjects that will include: making our tourism product more sustainable and the ongoing challenges the sector faces with recruitment, retention and skills. In addition, there will be several workshops covering areas such as, post pandemic marketing for tourism businesses and access to finance and business support.

Throughout the day, there will be several opportunities to network with industry peers on the issues being discussed, which will culminate in a networking reception as we draw the conference to a close.
